Another item from Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii. This easy craft represents one of the common items available in the Smash Bros. series.
The fan, ever since SSB on the N64 has been a rapid attack weapon. It’s attacks are fast enough to trap an opponent in position preventing them from escaping the flurry of blows, however each hit only does a very small amount of damage. Though when thrown, the fan can actually have considerable KO power! The Brawl trophy description states: “It’s mainly used as a comedic prop by comedians from Osaka and the Kansai region of Japan. Why it’s in Smash Bros. is a mystery.“. So by the sounds of it, it isn’t meant to be considered as a very serious weapon! :p
The model is very easy. Just fold the lines and squeeze together the segments of the fan to get the concertina/accordion shape, and glue this into the opening on the red handle. The fan is 30cm according to the designer’s notes and will probably require thick paper/card (i.e. not regular printer paper) if you want to swish it around.
